The Detroit Free Press has obtained court records containing over 6,000 text messages from the city-issued paging device of former mayoral chief-of-staff Christine Beatty, whose affair with former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick came vividly to life when prosecutors revealed that the two had been "sexting."
"And did you miss me, sexually?" Beatty asked Kilpatrick in an April 8, 2003 sext message, to which Kilpatrick replied in the affirmative.
The sext messages showed that Kilpatrick had lied under oath when he denied having an affair with his chief of staff during an investigation. Kilpatrick resigned in disgrace.
The text messages are available on the Free Press' website as large downloadable PDF files. They're also available right here (see below). Help us dig through them, and post the best sexts in the comments section. We'll post the Top 10 messages tomorrow!
